Happy Father’s Day

In the UAE, this Father’s Day is celebrated on 21st June which again coincides with the midsummer’s day.

Father’s Day is a day for honoring the dads and celebrating paternal bonds, fatherhood, and the power of the fathers in the society. Just like the moms, dads also play a crucial role in a child’s development and that’s why a day is marked to celebrate fatherhood. The doting children buy father’s day gifts to impress their dads (https://www.fnp.ae/article/when-is-fathers-day). 

On Father’s Day, people mark and celebrate fatherhood and paternal bonds. Father’s Day is the equivalent of Mother’s Day for fathers and is celebrated across the world. Father’s Day is a chance to show your respect and love for your dad, or whoever has been a paternal figure in your life.

The origins of Father’s Day stems back centuries across the world. Many people simply try and spend time with their fathers on Father’s Day.

On Father’s Day, many people also tend to mark the occasion with cards and gifts. Some people choose to celebrate the day with a trip out to spend time with their fathers.

This year the lockdown means people won’t be able to visit a restaurant or go to the cinema for Father’s Day like they usually might. But there are still plenty of ways to celebrate Father’s Day while the lockdown is in place.

Due to social distancing rules, many people will be visiting their father’s outside such as in gardens or out on a walk. But for people who won’t be able to meet up in-person, many people will have planned other ways to celebrate Father’s Day this year. Zoom has become a popular way for people to stay in touch during the pandemic, and there are sure to be a number of video calls taking place this weekend.

In the UAE there are some deals and activities to check out this Father’s Day no matter your preference (or budget).

This year, why not plan a family barbecue so you can bond with your father over hot steaks and burgers? Anyway, if you’re looking for nice restaurant with your family you can take your dad someplace nice, because of a number of restaurants are offering special discounts for the occasion. After weeks spent indoors, it’s natural to have a new-found appreciation for the simple things – including heading out to a nice restaurant with the family.

If your dad loves being pampered (and really needs a trip to the salon after all that time indoors) why not book him a session at the barbershopDubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo has partnered with furniture brand Ethan Allen to unveil an incredible Father’s Day experience. One lucky father-son duo will get the chance to win a sleepover experience at the aquarium tunnel which will be transformed into a five-star-room… so they can “count sharks” instead of sheep while falling asleep.

Don’t want to head out of the house, but still want to show him how much you care? You can get an array of Father’s Day treats delivered to your doorstep. Bite-sized cupcake delivery service Sugargram, for example, has launched a Father’s Day pack featuring 25 cupcakes.

Doesn’t matter the way, today it’s time to start planning ways to make dad feel special.
